Vocabulary Lessons with JT

JT has recently discovered that if he uses big words, it will make adults laugh. Always one to exploit such a situation, he uses every opportunity to demonstrate his impressive vocabulary. Often, he has just a little bit of knowledge about the word he's employing; just enough to make its use funny. On other occasions, he amends a word he knows to make it more helpful in the expression of his thoughts.

Thus, the other day he told me today that the fun-sized Butterfinger candy bar I ate after he took a bite and rejected it was "unsanitary."

But that was nothing compared to his characterization of some of the candy in his Halloween bin as "un-useless." Meaning, I believe, that he's planning to consume that candy and I needn't worry about his unsanitary leftovers.
